Katie Stuart

  1. Ellen Page, X-Men: The Last Stand, 2005.    No return gig from Bryan Singer’s  X2: X-Men United, 2002, for Katie Stuart.  Singer had gone on to ruin Superman Returns, thinking he’d be welcomed back by Fox. He wasn’t.  New helmer Brett Ratner obviously didn’t approve of Stuart.  He met Summer Glau but cast Maggie Grace as Kitty Pryde/Shadowcat. He then felt she was too old (you have to be young to pass through solid objects!). Truth is he’d fallen for the delightful Page in Hard Candy, 2004. She kept refuising the role, gave in survived to the next one: X-Men: Days of Future Past, 2013.
